I am hoping to play for the first time soon, and it may be a five player game. I'm wondering if anyone has had the chance to play with various player counts, and how the game differs when doing so. Seems that getting the building one wants could be more challenging, especially if you are the last player. Any other noticeable differences? What, if any would you think are the best player counts, and is starting out playing with five going to color our perceptions of the game, for positive or negative, or am I asking too many questions!? Thanks.

In the solo version, the virtual player can take up to 4 building cards. There are more buildings missing to choose from for the last player than in a 4 player game. In a game playing with other people though, someone else might snag the building you wanted before you get to choose.

With 5 players, both the building market and bonus resource spots are tight. This means taking initiative becomes more important. Also, there are more opportunities to help on crusades.

Definitely play the Quick Play game. With 5 players, it will still take 3+ hours. It's worth it, though.

Quinn, I think you'll enjoy this game. I've played with 3, 2, and solo so far and they have all been fantastic. Hope to get together soon for a game night featuring The King's Abbey!
